  • users have accounts in multiple journals, authors have moved and recreated accounts with new affiliation, etccross talk between website and MTS: (1) readers who are also authors/referees(2) in order to comment, you need to register – possibility to contact authorsconnections on the website: better recommendations to users if one can identify their preferences unambiguously, links between co-authors, notification of authors that comments on papers, etcservice to authors – (1) provide them with full and unambiguous credit for their contributions in our journals(2) develop services that rely on authors identity
  • At the moment, we are not yet able to search ORCID at this point ORCID cannot be associated with account if not authenticatedAPI wiork not integrateduseful for staffwill be useful for batch upload
  • Export into production: tracking system generates an XML file with ORCIDsTypesetters: XML files is sent to typesetters – who MANUALLY add the XML ORCID tags to the article XMLWeb production
  • Export into production: tracking system generates an XML file with ORCIDsTypesetters: XML files is sent to typesetters – who MANUALLY add the XML ORCID tags to the article XMLWeb production
  • Oauth implementation is that it is time consuming. There is a big learning curve, it is complex, there are multiple security issues to deal with to make sure you're safely authenticating across the open internet (by using appropriate protocols, encryption, firewalls, client authentication, etc).
  • ORCID creation per month: averaging 500/month in eJP – steady growth but only <10% submissions

    1. 1. Integration of ORCID identifiers by publishers Véronique Kiermer, PhD Executive Editor Head of Researchers Services Nature Publishing Group ORCID Outreach Meeting October 2013

    5. 5. Upon registration
    6. 6. ORCID: Authentication - set up NPG as trusted entity
    7. 7. ORCID information prepopulates NPG registration form In NPG systems: - a given ORCID can only be linked to one account - only one ORCID per account - user authenticate once then ORCID is shared with their other accounts in other NPG systems
    8. 8. Upon manuscript submission Authenticate to ORCID to create an identifier or link an existing identifier Set up NPG as trusted entity ORCID information pre-populates author information in submission form ORCID becomes associated with eJP account

    13. 13. Upon publication
    14. 14. Link from article to ORCID record • In future: update of ORCID record upon publication • NPG already sends ORCID-doi association to CrossRef and indexers • In future, CrossRef will be able to push information to ORCID
    15. 15. ORCID collection Production Article file Publication Third party
    16. 16. Publishers implementation challenges • O Auth protocol implementation • ensuring that ORCIDs remain unique • dealing with multiple vendors during production • manual integration in XML • proofing challenges • correction policy
    17. 17. Stats • Traffic referral to ORCID from NPG systems: 3,000 visitors/month (~2,500 unique visitors) • ORCID creation: ~1,000 /month • September: 1,735 authorizations; 25 access denied Since launch at NPG (1 year): • 4500 user accounts in manuscript tracking system with ORCIDs • 4166 user accounts in nature.com with ORCIDs
    18. 18. An ORCID mandate for all authors? • we currently do not mandate ORCIDs • we may consider mandating ORCID for corresponding authors/submitters but NOT for co-authors • we need strong incentives for authors to make them link an ORCID to their paper • requires the whole ecosystem to work in coordinated fashion
    19. 19. Two options to encourage adoption Contact co-authors Submitter enters ORCIDs instead of Authors details • Publisher collects min information about coauthors from submitter: name, email • Publisher contacts all coauthors during manuscript consideration – asking them to register for an ORCID • Benefits to authors? • Publisher queries ORCID and returns prepopulated field for submitter to validate • Need email and affiliation from ORCID
    20. 20. Incentives for authors • “Make my life easier when I submit a paper” – remove the need to key in my up-to-date personal information – remove the need for me to enter my co-authors information • “Help me manage my online presence and reporting needs” – my ORCID profile is automatically updated upon publication of a new article – my other profiles read from ORCID – my publisher knows my obligations to my funder (ms deposition)
    21. 21. Potential future services • facilitate manuscript submission • automate deposition of manuscripts in relevant repositories • better recommendations to readers • commenting notification • micro-attribution, better credit for all contributions
